How Many People Died from Maritime Disasters?

If your ancestors were at sea enroute during the 18th century, deaths were rather frequent.  The list of shipwrecks includes ships sunk, foundered, grounded or otherwise lost. The estimate of maritime deaths of Great Britain vessels on the high seas is as follows:
1703> 1500 plus
1707> 1400-2000
1782> 3500
Still and all, considering radar, sonar and other modern ship-detecting devices, sunken vessels continue to be discovered on the high seas and these estimates may just begin to touch the surface of reality.
